Fans fell in love with Gleb Savchenko’s drag alter ego Natasha on the DWTS season 31 finale. Now they want to see her return on the DWTS Live tour.
During the Dancing With The Stars season 31 finale, Gleb Savchenko appeared in his and Shangela’s freestyle dance as his drag alter ego, Natasha, and now fans are hoping to see her return for the DWTS Live tour. Shangela and Gleb concluded their incredible run on DWTS with a drag spectacular. Their showstopping freestyle dance was one of the best in DWTS history. They danced to a mashup of “Call Me Mother” by RuPaul and “Survivor” by Destiny’s Child. One of the greatest highlights was Gleb performing as Natasha, as he celebrated drag with Shangela.
Dancing With The Stars Live shared an Instagram post, which included a video of Shangela’s partner Gleb with the caption, “DWTS fans begging us to bring Natasha on tour.” In the video, Gleb, dressed in a hoodie, lip syncs to a clip with the lyrics, “It would be so awesome. It would be so cool.” However, the caption of the post reads, “Sadly Natasha had a scheduling conflict [wink face emoji].” DWTS fans flooded the comments section of the post with messages that expressed their hopes that Natasha will join the tour. They were excited by the idea.
DWTS Fans Want To See Shangela On Tour
Some DWTS fans expressed that they wished Shangela would also make an appearance on the tour. However, Shangela is not scheduled to dance on any of the tour stops. Fans begged Gleb to revive his performance as Natasha. The DWTS Live tour kicks off on January 6 in National Harbor, Maryland. There are stops nearly every day in various cities in the United States and in Ontario, Canada. Due to popular demand, some matinée performances have been added to certain dates as well. The tour concludes on March 12 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Professional dancer Emma Slater and DWTS season 31 runner-up Gabby Windey will co-host the tour. In addition to Gleb, several other fan-favorite DWTS professional dancers will perform on the tour. They include Emma, Britt Stewart, Alan Bersten, Brandon Armstrong, and Sasha Farber. Also, DWTS season 31 troupe dancers Alexis Warr and Kateryna Klishyna will appear. Alexis danced with DWTS season 31 contestant Joseph Baena when she filled in for Daniella Karagach, who tested positive for COVID-19. DWTS celebrity contestants Daniel Durant, Vinny Guadagnino, Heidi D’Amelio, and Charli D’Amelio will also appear at certain stops.
Gleb will have plenty of opportunities to bring Natasha back to the DWTS stage. The tone of the Instagram post seems to indicate that he probably will surprise fans at the tour as his drag alter ego. His season with Shangela was groundbreaking because she was the first drag performer ever to appear on DWTS. They were also the first Dancing With The Stars male-male partners. They were very entertaining and helped to break down barriers. Their representation of the drag community helped to create understanding. As Gleb embraced drag as Natasha with Shangela, he proved that the art form is for everyone.
